I am impressed with the care given by Elisha on every visit with her. She is very holistic and will address every concern I have to a high degree of satisfaction.


Elisha Salcido and Dr. May are both always great. Friendly, provide all information and give plenty of options.


love my bariatric team


Excellent explanation of recent labs and vitamins I'm taking. She did reach out to my rheumatologist about one medication. Appreciate her going the extra mile.


I am grateful for the staff at the Bariatric Clinic. If it wasn't for Elisha and her staff, I would have failed and almost did. I am over my plateau and losing weight again.


I could never thank Dr. Elisha Salcido enough for her ability to provide care across many dimensions during 2020 especially. When I first met her in 2018, I had no idea the level of quality support I was going to receive over the years. Okay, she may be "PA," but she is Dr. PA in my experience. She picks up on every nuance of the complex nature of the disease of obesity, which in our culture is difficult to do in practice. This month I faced an extreme crisis and her support, while it may or may not have seemed minor to her, was a major touch point that helped me stay resilient and maintain my wellness and support my husband and entire social circle.


Elisha is the best. I have nothing but good things to say about her.


She knew my problem by symptoms and _____ with medicine.


I can't Imagin anyone caring more about me and my condition. I fell they were worried about me and did what they could to help me.


ELISHA SALCIDO PA is always caring and pleasant during our discussions and is very helpful when addressing my concerns.
